    I have some of the Red Super Speed spent hulls in my hull collection. The brass is what i term "very high brass". Nice find though. Neat collectors pieces.--Matt

    The Black Diamond shell are made in Italy, they are nickel plated shot. I was told when I purchased a skid of these years ago they where made for bunker trap and they ruled on the 1 oz load and scores went up instead of down not ruled on 24 gram loads and even better scores. I still have a case of these 25 boxes of 10 shells each. thanks Ronnie

    No Whiz,

    I actually got these from a fellow ts.com guy many years ago. I've always been a sucker for old shotshells.
